Muti Music, the San Francisco bass music label, is celebrating an amazing accomplishment of 20 years of cranking out top-notch electronic music releases. The 20 Years of Muti compilation album features tons of bangin’ releases, spanning genres like Drum and Bass, Glitch, Wave, Halftime, and Footwork, from impressive production minds like ill.gates, MiMOSA, Gladkill, An-ten-nae and tons more!
We had the pleasure of teaming up with the Muti Music team to premiere “Battle Cat”, a filthy new offering from the New Zealand-born, Australia-based funkmaster OPIUO.
OPIOU has been a shining light in the bass music arena for many years. His genre-blending is like none other, masterfully employing any and every sub-genre of electronic music within his upbeat, funky works. He’s played some of the biggest festivals and venues in the world, including Lollapalooza, Coachella, Red Rocks, and Glastonbury. His 2022 A Shape Of Sound album is one of our favorite projects of the year and features collaborations with Eric Benny Bloom of Lettuce and Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic.
On “Battle Cat,” OPIOU creates a danceable yet still brutally diabolical soundscape. Its pulsating beats and growling synths are the perfect attributes of a festival-ready banger and that’s just what we’ve gotten right here. It’s crystal clear the high-level production chops OPIUO harbors and this track is just another example of his immense dedication to the craft.
